Printing from OpenOffice.org is fine, but whenever I try to print from Firefix, the output comes out in Landscape with the top part of the text chopped off. The Print Preview looks fine.
Printing to file a .ps and then using gv to look at that output is wrong also?
It looks fine via .ps and gv. (Good diagnostic; thanks. I'm still not sure where to go from here, but this was good info.)
Wel anyway you will be able to print via gv.

Ah. I didn't actually try printing from gv; I just looked at it on-screen. Now that you've mentioned it, I tried printing, and it came out landscape.

I just found ~/.lpoptions in my home directory, and in it was a section that said "orientation-requested=4"; I changed this to 1, and now I'm getting portrait printouts instead of landscape. Woot! (Of course, I haven't tried printing from OO.o, etc, so I may have hosed up something else.)

I don't know how this file was generated, or what 1 or 4 means, or where this file got the idea I wanted this setting to be 4, but I believe I'm getting closer to solving my issue.

The printout seems a little low on the page, but I think I'll worry about that another day.
